Samsung Galaxy S23 Announced – South African Pricing and Release Date Details

During its annual Galaxy Unpacked event, Samsung unveiled its latest flagship smartphone range. As expected the lineup includes the Samsung Galaxy S23, S23+ and S23 Ultra. Each of the phones packs unique features but if you want the best, you’ll need to go for the S23 Ultra. It comes with a massive 200MP camera sensor, new low-light features, 8K video recording and more.

Samsung has also improved the entire range by including the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 CPU in all the models. This has enhanced not only the general performance of the phones but also gaming and 3D workloads.

The biggest change in the lineup is the new camera layout which has now dropped the cut-out completely. Instead, the camera system now juts out of the back of the phone without any module. As a result, the back of the phone is much cleaner than before.

All three Galaxy S23 phones come in four colours. There’s Phantom Black, Cream, Green and Lavender.
